Rated 5 out of 5 by Amanda2106 very durable, used for 2.5 years!
I just looked at my account to see when I ordered this rug, which was 2.5 years ago! When I first got the rug, I thought the pattern (in gray/sand) may make my eyes cross a little although it looks exactly as it does online. It has turned out to be a super durable rug for our family of 5. We use the 4x6 in our kitchen, which gets very dirty with 3 kids under 5. It hides the dirt very well and I have not taken it outside to clean it yet(yikes) just cleaned up spots/spills. Going to order another one in another print just for a change and rinse this one out and move it to our patio. May try one for our bathroom too. Great value and still has lots of life left!!

By far, some of the most VERSATILE rugs! I have them indoors AND outdoors. They are well constructed and durable. Dirty? Take them outside and hose them down! I will continue to buy these rugs as my tastes and designs change! You can't beat the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by aednyc Great rug
I've had this rug for over 2 yrs. now and it looks the same as the day I got it. I have 3 cats who claws at it as if it were a scratching post and never a mark on it. Super easy to vacuum. I use it inside but will probably get another for the balcony. Best purchase I've made in a long time.

by thriftydecorgirl Would never know it's Indoor/Outdoor Carpet!!
To be honest, I have not had good experiences with ordering indoor/outdoor carpeting from other retailers in my past. Although I wanted this carpet in my living room, it was a large size needed and I hated to order it, not be happy and have to return it. Then, I received notification that this style/brand was on sale, so I decided to take a chance and I ordered a smaller size for my kitchen to "test" it out. I fell in LOVE with it! It is soft under foot...cleans up easily and does NOT look like your typical indoor/outdoor carpeting. I immediately ordered the 8x10 size for my living room.
My only tips: 1. You definitely need a rug pad underneath. Both of my rugs slid all over the hardwoods without pads. My old rug was 100% wool and pilled terribly....but that's what wool does. Even after several years, I needed to vacuum it EVERY day...and no one has time for that! I feel my living room receives too much traffic for wool and this rug works perfectly!
2. Roll the rug up in the opposite direction when you take it out of the packaging to get it to lie flat. Let it sit that way overnight and it will be flat the next day when you set it in place. Otherwise, it takes days for the rolls to go flat.
Honestly, I really have NO complaints. The black color I ordered it true to the photo. It is MUCH softer than I ever imagined. Looking forward to ordering more for my beach house!

I love this rug! We live in MI and currently have lots of wet/snowy shoes coming in the house. Many shoes have been wiped on it so far and the rug doesn't even look dirty yet! Such a quality purchase and was shipped quickly!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Galleriagirl11 Love the pattern
I bought this rug for my laundry room. To cover up my ugly tile & to add a bit of fun to the room. I do love the look, & it looks to hide dirt well. The rug felt extremely hard & stiff unwrapping. Getting wrinkles out of the rug was like torture. Im used to dealing with new wrinkled rugs, I have a system putting big heavy books all over the rug for a day or two. It usually works but I ended up having to steam the rug twice to get it flat. I can't imagine doing this for a bigger rug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gd1477 Perfect choice
I ordered the runner in sage and I'm very pleased with it. It took about 10 days for it to lay flat and now that it has, it really looks great. Seems to be very durable. My husband spilled teriyaki marinade all over the rug and it cleaned up quickly. Great value. Prompt delivery. Don't hesitate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DecoratinginCT Exactly the right slate gray color
I ordered this rug in the gray/sand combo and the color is spot-on-- it's that perfect slate gray that's so popular right now. And the rug is soft underfoot, unlike other indoor/outdoor rugs I've purchased. A great deal.
It took a few days to flatten out-- we rolled it in the reverse of the way it was rolled when shipped and left it like that for 24 hours and then laid it flat to settle. That worked perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EMTnester Love it!
Great little rug - perfect for my bathroom - perked it up considerably. Easy to sweep clean, which is good because my cat's litter box is in the same area, and the rug needs sweeping often.
Even though chevron designs seem to be on the way out, I've always loved them, and am glad I bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SusanMassachusetts Just What I Expected and Wanted
This black/oatmeal runner is exactly what I expected and wanted. It's in my family room replacing another runner, and it is coordinated with an indoor/outdoor area rug from another store; both replace physically heavy, densely piled wool, oriental rugs. Although the previous runner and area rug were very good products, I wanted to lighten up the perceptual weight of the room and neutralize it a bit, while preserving its traditional, elegant look, and be consistent with the "cleaner", updated look of my entire house. The runner is on a hardwood floor, and I haven't needed a pad. It has substance to it, which is remarkable considering the price. Due to its light weight it is easy to pick up when the floor is cleaned. The CS rep whom I contacted to ensure free shipping was extremely helpful.

This purchase was the third of these rugs I have purchased from Ballard. I already had this one in a smaller dimension. I love these rugs--and use them indoors. They look fabulous--and if you have pets, as I do, their easy care nature is a godsend. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brinks This is a practical/stylish rug!
I've purchased these indoor/outdoor rugs for my main living areas because they can really handle our everyday life! Between 3 kids, 1 husband and a dog, I can take them outside, run the hose over them to clean them, let them dry and put them back down looking great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by EmpressSandra Very chic
I bought this in the largest size for a screened porch. The black chevron is terrific. When I unrolled it, it laid flat and had enough "weight" that it didn't slip on floor or blow around. Definitely would buy again. A great price for the value #I did get it on sale#.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mm14 Love these rugs
I have purchased quite a few in the ''mineral'' shade over the last 3-4 months. The ''mineral'' is a gorgeous color. I now have two runners, some of the smallest rectangles, and a few of the much larger sizes for the kitchen area and the family room. These...so far...spot wash very well. I have two young giant breed rescue dogs, and two cats...and these area rugs work well for them, and the very careless male human ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by hipsuburbanmomofthree Great kitchen rug!
I bought this for the kitchen floor in front of my sink. Love it! I don't have to worry about it getting wet and I can sweep up any crumbs. The color is great with my walnut cabinets and the low profile doesn't create a trip hazard. Thinking I might add the same rug in a different color and shape for the mud room!

by GloG Wish I would of returned this item-grey/sand
I bought this rug for my living room. It's never laid flat. On one side it keeps bunching up. I've tried laying heavy items on it to flatten it out. I've but my sofa over that end. Nothing has worked it just keeps bunching up and frustrating me. When I first bought it I thought it was good enough for the price. It's cheap looking but I thought from a distance you really couldn't tell so for the price I was ok with it since I didn't pay hundreds for it. I thought eventually it would lay flat. So basically it was a waste of my money because it looks horrible bunching up.

I love my Chevron Stripe Indoor/Outdoor Rug in gray. I put it in my foyer just inside my front door. It brings a cheery modern touch to my 1920's home. We also have a large dog that sheds and the rug is easy to clean and vacuum.

I have this rug in the master bath...the pattern is really amazing and gives the bath a whole new look. It's also great for clean up. I have two cats who shed a lot and was forever washing my bath rugs. Now I just wipe the rug off the way I do the floor. I'm very pleased.

I bought 2 of the mineral and ivory color (smallest size) for my patio entries. They are a soft subtle spa aqua. They can be hosed off (and I'm sure, scrubbed with dish soap if necessary). They shed dirt well because they are essentially woven plastic, but they look like smooth carpeting and are very handsome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BusyMomma Perfect in the Kitchen
I love the Ballard indoor outdoor rugs! They are really easy to clean which is great for my use as I have the runner in my kitchen along the main cooking and cleaning aisle. Even a little red sauce comes up with a little carpet cleaner spray and wipe off with water. In the summer I bring them outside and soap them up rinse and dry in the sun to freshen up. This B&W chevron pattern is really stylish and looks great in our white kitchen, but I will say it can play with your eyes a bit. If you are sensitive to patterns with a lot of movement, you may want to try a different pattern in one of these rugs. Ballard has a nice selection!

I have several of these rugs throughout my home. I have been overly happy with how easily they clean up after a stain. It really is as simple as washing the spot with soap and water. The rugs are great in my kitchen area as well as under my coffee table where we snack while watching TV.
